, it actually has these built in very significant disincentives towards making big deals, towards working together. and we are now seeing the fruits of that evolution in the house in particular. let's talk about the house in particular. john boehner has been a very interesting figure in all of this. at one point he was walking in the back door of the white house and trying to cut a deal with the president. obviously, shamed out of that. so now he came up with his own deal and spent a lot of time last night bringing people in through his front door, recalcitrant republicans, to get them on board. is he wounded by what happened this week? is he strengthened? >> i think what happened this week is that we have seen how little leverage and how weak john boehner really is. you know, he has a leadership style that he has said, you know, after the top-down leadership style we saw with nancy pelosi, that he wanted to be a consensus leader, that things would come from the bottom up and he won his majority in the house because a lot of these freshmen ran specifically against the establishmen

government has a big $23 billion social security payment and it has between $10 billion and $12 billion in tax revenue coming in. i think the really big issue for the treasury is going to be how it distinguishes between, if you will, paying back the money it already owes, paying back the government bond holders, and paying its ongoing running costs, things like social security, medicare, medicaid, military salaries and so forth, and i think the betting is that the government will put, will give a priority to paying the bills it already owes, to paying the bond holders, simply because if you don't do that, you go into massive default, and the whole global financial system i think really starts getting shaky, but not paying some of the big government commitments within the united states, that's going to get painful pretty fast. >> not paying the social securitys, the medicares, the medicaids of the world or even our defense budget that's as big of an issue for many in many mind as defaulting on our debt which would be a nonpayment on the debt. constitutionally we have to pay that debt off fi

the harry reid plan in the united states senate. now this is not that big a surprise. in fact, we always knew he was going to have problems passing the bill. however, the wrinkle comes when the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell puts out a letter just a little while ago essentially telling the world that he had 43 republicans assigned on opposing senator reid's bill. you see it, part of the text, given the nation's enormous future spending challenges, it will be irresponsible to gift president this unprecedented additional borrowing authority without requiring the enactment of significant spending reductions and reforms. so 43 republicans say they will not vote for the bill as it is written. and mccain -- i'm sorry, mcconnell is pressing this point by saying he would like to see a vote now on the senate floor. but republicans would like a little time to work on the language and perhaps scare up some more support. let's listen to what mcconnell said a little while ago on the senate floor. >> so we have the astonishing development here that my good friend, the majority leader,
